Michael Siemsen's "The Dig" beats the last contemporary Science Fiction I read, "14" by Peter Clines, by a mile. He has created a uniquely gifted char..Show More »acter, whose ability to touch an item and go back to emotionally charged moments that happened while the item was in use... is a gift and a curse. It has made his a millionaire at age 23, and a prisoner of his own OCD type protective needs to be able to function. Obviously you have to suspend disbelief... but I did it once and rode around nicely in his world without being jarred out. I consider it a brain in neutral, have fun read and the writing is basic plot driven, nothing to get excited about, the plot is just so unique it makes up for the writing. I could see it being a movie. It will obviously be a series, although this stands alone, and I'll probably buy the next. Very little swearing, a little kissing, some violence... but a page turner that flashes from a previously unknown tribe to the archeologists seeking to unearth the remains. Probably will appeal to a young male audience the most, but I am the opposite and found it enjoyable. We will hear more about this book.
